3 on top of the world Hans Georg

4 high-energy nucleus-nucleus collisions

5 central collision collision happens here size ~10fm 4000 charged particles illuminates TPC volume size ~4m

6 STAR year 2 data 3/15/135/24 White papers - STAR: Nucl. Phys. A757, p102. Hans Georg Ritter Symposium

7 Collectivity observed in spectra 3/15/136/24 STAR: Phys. Rev. C70, (R). strongly curved  strong flow exponential  no flow Hans Georg Ritter Symposium More central collisions

8 matter flows - collectivity 3/15/137/24 STAR Data: Nucl. Phys. A757, (2005) 102. Nu Xu plot 2.0 strange matter flows bulk matter flows partonic collectivity ? Hans Georg Ritter Symposium

10 discovery of partonic collectivity 9/24 PHENIX, PRL 98, (2007) STAR, PRL 95, (2005) S. Voloshin, QM02, 379c (2003) elliptic flow of (multi-) strange  and  and quark number scaling: first observed in  and K 0 S PhD theses of Jinghua Fu, Wuhan/LBNL and Paul Sorensen, UCLA/LBNL  partonic collectivity STAR, PRC 75, (2007) STAR, PRL 95, (2005)

11 higher harmonics 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium10/24 extract power spectrum of v n, like WMAP* higher harmonics odd harmonics important v 3 : access /s STAR, arXiv: [nucl-ex]; STAR, PRL 92 (2004) ; A.Mocsy and P. Sorensen, NPA 855 (2011) 241; B. Alver and G. Roland, PRC 81 (2010) ; *WMAP data: The NASA/WMAP Science team; QGP plot: B. Schenke, S. Jeon, and C. Gale, arXiV:

13 entering the anti-world 3/15/1312/24Hans Georg Ritter Symposium anti-alpha discovered rarest signal in HI ever observed (2/10 8 ) STAR, Nature 473 (2011) 353.

14 STAR: key to success 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium13/24 large data sets large acceptance low-p T coverage excellent PID Hans Georg

15 Go heavy or go home ! 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium14/24 X. Zhu, M. Bleicher, S.L. Huang, K.S., H. Stöcker, N. Xu, and P. Zhuang, PLB 647 (2007) 366. new scale: m c,b »  QCD m c,b ≈ const. m u,d,s ≠ const.

16 Where does all the charm go ? Total charm cross section: open-charmed hadrons, e.g. D 0, D +, D* +,  c, … and c,b  e() + X Quarkonia, e.g. J/ carries 1% of total charm 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium15/24 D0D0 D±D± DsDs cc J/(charmonium) D *+

17 Open-charm production 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium16/24 at RHIC: large combinatorial background PhD thesis Xin Dong USTC/LBNL STAR upgrade with Heavy Flavor Tracker will impose high precision STAR, PRD 85 (2012) ; ALICE, JHEP 1207 (212) 191.

18 Heavy-quark detection 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium17/24 golden channel: D 0  K - +  , c = 123 m displaced decay vertex is signature of heavy-quark decay plot: courtesy of D. Tlusty.

19 Heavy Flavor Tracker 3/15/1318/5 SSD IST PXL HFT Hans Georg Ritter Symposium

20 The Heavy Flavor Tracker for STAR Hans Georg with an HFT prototype 10 m precision demonstrated 10 weeks of running in 2014 will decisively address open charm at RHIC

21 some more statistics 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium20/24 STAR white paper: Nucl. Phys. A757 (2005) most cited RHIC paper - most cited HI experimental paper Bjorken, PRD 27 (1983) Mastsui and Satz, PLB 178 (1986)

24 some personal remarks o ‘cultural shock’: - flat hierarchies, informal style - took me 6 months to get over it o can you think about charm ? Hans Georg in 2001 o Berkeley style: - people doing the work are getting exposed, i.e. plenary talks, committees, … 3/15/13Hans Georg Ritter Symposium
